Clevis pins are one part of a fastener known as a clevis which is basically a shackle. It is U shaped and the Clevis Pins goes through the end of it and is help in place with a pin. For anybody who has ever been sailing, they will have seen lots of these as they are used to hold the sheets, sails and halyards in place. The great thing about them is that they allow some movement in some directions but not in others. They are used in farming equipment, as well as the car making, aircraft and construction industries.

What types of clevis pins are available?

Clevis pins come in two types of measurement. These are metric and imperial. Despite the metric system being in place for many years now there are still quite a lot of areas where the imperial is still used. This is why the clevis pin comes in two types of measurement. They also come in two types of fastening which is threaded and unthreaded. The threaded ones are held in place by being screwed in. The unthreaded ones are held in place with a pin. Both types are very common and it is hard to say which is best. Although for sailing purposes the pin option is probably the best as the thread can seize up with the wet conditions.

Where is a good place to buy clevis pins?

There are a few good places that you can buy clevis pins, although as with most things it is always a good idea to shop around as prices and quality can vary greatly.
